  1. Fair enough, but I was really directing the question at Matty for the brokers side, which he has since answered and I thank him for it. It was also more of a 'what is the usual process' question. Back to your side, I'm surprised the buyer didn't go down the legal route, or maybe he did - but that choice or result really has nothing to do with us.

  3. So just to be sure I am understanding this ^^^^ correctly - first buyer makes offer and pays deposit, gets survey but then changes his mind (no reason given), broker sells to subsequent buyer and owner and broker pocket sales proceeds AND first buyers deposit.
  4. I did read your post but have no idea of the other post you refer to. I did say that a potential buyer making multiple offers etc was just 'one of those things' similar to buying a house. In both transactions there is a commitment made by the buyer in that they spend a considerable amount of money in surveys (and with a house, legal fees and costs) thereby showing that they are serious - the seller, even if a broker, risks no major cost taking the boat off the market temporarily. There is nothing that can be done about tyre kickers in either scenario. There is also no reason why the sell
  5. A good summary of how a normal boat purchase should go through.
  6. Any seller that was convinced his boat was sound and worth the agreed price should be happy to accept it going through subject to survey without a deposit. If the survey subsequently found a problem, the potential buyer would be well in his rights to walk away - bit difficult if the seller has already banked £6000 of the buyers hard earned. The subject of a buyer just frivolously making multiple offers on a variety of boats is another thing. Its not protected when buying a house which kinda grates with me, but that's the way of things - I consider boat buying to be similar. If a potentia
  7. When buying from either a private seller or broker, I am totally against this process of handing over a large deposit before having a survey unless you are totally committed to buy regardless of the survey outcome. As mrsmelly says above, if the deposit is to hold the boat while getting the balance organised, that is totally different. I might grudgingly hand over a nominal £500 before the survey, just to stop the boat being sold, but no way would I be handing over the thousands that other buyers seem to feel happy doing. I've seen some brokers stating that basically if you have handed ov
  8. Could be because, apart from the 'shopping centre' which is 95% national brand companys, there is no actual town centre. The various satellite towns and villages that make up Milton Keynes as a whole mostly have their own small town centres and High Streets, but when visiting MK, in general these areas are not on the list to go have a look. Its a bit of a Marmite town, but we've lived here for over 25 years and like it enough that I doubt we will ever move anywhere else.
  9. At a guess, that's the outlet point for the tank - rip out a bit more of the wall and you may get the answer you are looking for! But you now have to come back and tell us what you found! With more photos!
  10. The Tesco's in Wolverton is not that obvious from the canal. As you enter Wolverton (from the north) one of the first things you come across is a line of brand new flats on the towpath side with mooring bollards or rings, can't remember which, and the old run down factories opposite. Moor there, and cross the fancy new bridge, comes out on a main road, turn right and Tesco's is 100 yards or so along. There is also a Tesco mini in Simpson right near Bowlers Bridge, very close, but you will need to refer to a map to find it.
  11. Does the same rule apply if you have a UK purchased car in the EU?
